Thrift event

Last weekend I went to a thrift event for the first time. My boyfriend's mom is an experienced thrifter and knows just where to find the best stuff. This event was for clothing only and it was pretty well organized. No big piles of clothes, but every item on a clothes hanger. And there were fitting rooms as well. As a late birthday present, I was allowed to pick out clothing for a total of 60 euros, but I ended up finding much more. Of course I intended to pay for this myself, but then my boyfriend's mom told me that everything was a present! I'm still a bit overwhelmed...such a great gift!
Some items were only a couple of euros, the more expensive looking ones about ten. I mainly found tops and skirts, but also two pair of jeans to wear at my job.
Since I brought a gigantic bag full of clothing, I've only picked a few pieces to photograph:

5 opmerkingen:

  1. Leuke dingen zeg! En zeker voor dat geld. Ik heb nog even gekeken voor de Ij hallen en het is in principe een vlooienmarkt maar ze hebben heel veel kleding :) http://www.ijhallen.nl/index.php is ongeveer rond het begin van iedere maand.

  2. Aw, the one with the orange highlights is so cool! I love thrifting, but there aren't any thrift-events over here.

  3. I love thrifting! I'm lucky to live near a huge and well-organized thrift store. It really makes a difference. I've heard that there is a Goodwill warehouse here in the states (in Portland, I believe) that you have to dig through bins and it is recommended you wear gloves. Eep!

  4. Looks like you found some great stuff! 90% of my wardrobe is thrifted. I'm kinda addicted to it. :)
